If every post I made equaled the amount of food I could eat, I would be an anorexic person. Nay, I would be a dead one! I really ought to post more often . . .
For today’s post, I want to share a word that I came across when I read the book The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing by M. T. Anderson. That’s a great book. I highly recommend it!
The word is rube. Rube [roob] is a noun that means an unsophisticated person from a rural area. A hick. In the book I mentioned above, Octavian was the guinea pig in a test to see if he could be transformed from a rube into an educated person.
I grew up on a farm in southeastern Idaho. I was a rube. Hopefully, I’m not one any more now! I have gotten an education. However, I do currently live in a rural area . . .
